College Student Forced To Remove American Flag From Balcony Because ‘Foreign People Could Find It Offensive’

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Via Breitbart: A San Diego State University sophomore was forced to remove an American flag from his balcony after apartment managers said foreigners could find the display offensive. Brad Smith, who had just moved into the Boulevard 63 apartment complex in San Diego last month, told ABC 10 News that he received a written notice to remove the flag a few days ago. “We were then told that it was for political reasons and that the flag could offend foreign people that live here, foreign exchange students,” Smith said. “I’ve had friends and family fight to defend […]

Scratch a Democrat and an anti-Semite Comes Out

The Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren Edition VP Joe Biden colorfully slandered Jews yesterday with an offensive medieval stereotype. “My son as attorney general, the year in Iraq, came back and that’s one of the things that he finds is, was most in need, when he was over there in Iraq for a year, people would come to him and talk about what was happening at home, in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being, I mean these Shylocks who took advantage of these women and men while overseas.” The reference is from Shakespeare’s […]

Political Correctness: An Excuse for Social Rot and A Shield for Child Sexual Abuse – Rotherham is the PC Poster Child

The progressive creed of political correctness (PC) has been foisted on western cultures for decades. I don’t know if the progressives used this weapon with the intention to divide and destroy our cultures or if they really believe in a kumbaya world. This humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in is to point where he no longer cares what their intentions are/were. It’s time _ no, scratch that _ it’s way past time that those who still maintain a modicum of sanity to stand up and be counted and to call this particular tool of the […]

Va. Dem. Prays for God to Murder Everyone in NRA with Deadly Ebola Virus

Hat/Tip to Examiner.com. I would be the first to admit that there are loons and wing nuts at all points along the political spectrum. But if there was a cartoon of a far left nut job, this guy would be the model for that character. Mike Dickinson, the unhinged Virginia Democrat who once sought the House seat formerly held by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., issued a tweet Sunday asking God to kill everyone in the NRA with the Ebola virus. The tweet was sent after he issued another message saying he would lead a prayer asking God to murder everyone […]

New York Government Tries To Force Christian Farmers To Host Same-Sex Marriage

  We have covered this issue before on Political Realities. Our government seems insistent on forcing the homosexual agenda down our throats at a rapid pace. We have seen this happen, time after time. Homosexual couples want to get married. They then proceed to accost Christian business owners, attempting to force them to participate in their perverted version of marriage, providing services to a wedding they can not agree with, in good conscience. We are told that this is not really happening, but OK Politechs has a list of several times this has happened. We can now add one more instance of […]

Mike Ditka on Furor over Redskins’ Name: “…so stupid, it’s appalling…”

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Finally, a voice of reason amid a sea of insanity! Former NFL player and coach Mike Ditka has lashed out at “liberals” and “politically correct idiots” who are calling for the Washington Redskins to change the team’s name because it’s a “racial slur” offensive to Native Americans. In an interview with RedskinsHistorian.com, the ESPN analyst made it clear that he plans to continue using the football franchise’s Redskins nickname during the season even though some NFL announcers are considering just calling the team “Washington,” USA Today reported. “What’s all the stink over the Redskin name?” said the […]

Navy Bans Bibles then Kicks Atheist Group to the Curb – Puts Bibles Back in Hotels

Hat/Tip to Tim Brown at the Freedom Outpost. Those tolerant lefties are at it again. This time, they tried to intimidate the Navy into removing Gideon Bibles from hotel rooms. Atheists from the Freedom from Religion Foundation had complained back in March to the US Navy that the Navy was unconstitutionally showing preference to Christianity. As a result, the Navy sent out a memo in June informing all lodge managers that any religious materials, including Bibles, would be removed from the rooms under “established procedures for the lost-and-found property.” However, upon a review of its policies, the Navy ordered that […]

Rabbi Shot and Killed While Walking to Synagogue: Was it a Hate Crime Encouraged by “Progressive” Anti-Semitism?

A week ago,  a Rabbi was shot and killed in Miami Beach while walking to services.  The local NBC affiliate has more… Please note that another nearby Synagogue was vandalized recently with a swastika and the word “Hamas.” In the meantime, we have chronicled the rampant anti-semitism of the political left. Public School Teacher Gives Assignment: Explain why “Jews are Evil“ Stealth Indoctrination, With a Side of Anti-Semitism Anti-Semitism Alert: Obama Supporters Call for Israel’s Destruction Occupy Commemorates Holocaust Day by Posting Anti-Semitic Cartoon Story Update: Occupy Oakland’s Anti-Semitic Pledge, and MSM Ignores Flag Burning Anti-Semitism Alert: Increasing on College […]

Change, Intervention, and Dependency

The concept of the government “solving” all the problems of the world has crept into our society over time. With every new program, every new entitlement, the public has  gradually become accustomed to the government solving the ills of the world. And what of fact that the government seemed to make all of these problems worse? Well, that’s neglected. After all, the government is taking care of it-I don’t have to worry about it, right? Starting with the “progressive” movement in the late 19th century and accelerating greatly since the great depression, the government has vastly increased it’s meddling in […]

Liberal Logic Vs Hobby Lobby, Chick-Fil-A, The Tea party, and Hamas

Here is an example how liberals view Hobby lobby, Chick-fil-A, the Tea Party, and Hamas.

Christian Divorce Rate Far Lower Than Previously Thought

Critics of Christian morality have more facts to ignore as of late.  For years now, it has been said that the divorce rate among Christians was, for all practical purposes, identical to the general population.  However, a recently revealed study of eight years shows that the divorce rate for Christians is far less that previously thought.  CBN has more… ATLANTA — It’s long been believed that half of America’s marriages end in divorce and the problem is just as bad in the Church as the rest of the country. But when Harvard-trained researcher Shaunti Feldhahn tried to find the actual […]

Jimmy Carter Pushes US Government To Recognize Hamas

This shouldn’t come as any kind of major surprise to anyone who has paid attention, but former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news. He is really making a splash with an op-ed he coauthored, in which he pushes for our government to formally recognize the terrorist organization, Hamas, as a legitimate political actor. Aren’t you glad this man isn’t in charge of our foreign policy right now? Although, what our current leadership is sadly lacking. Does anyone really take Jimmy Carter seriously anymore? The idea that he can be so obscenely incorrect in his assessment of the situation […]

Some Thoughts on the Current Conflict Between Hamas and Israel, from 2011

Given the current state of affairs in the Middle East, and especially concerning Israel, I thought it might be good to revisit a post that I wrote a little over three years ago… As I’ve watched the “Arab Spring” unfold, and have monitored words and deeds of the “palestinians,” some ideas come to mind.  The entire region is claimed as holy by three religions, and one in particular, has been inflamed into what seems to be a genocidal rage.  With the “new anti-Semitism” out in the open, and spreading, I fear that the next great international conflict will involve Israel. […]

Progressive View: Socialize Debt To Grow The Economy

Socializing debt is certainly not a new concept. Who among us. who has ever bought a house, did not take advantage the mortgage interest deduction when itemizing our tax returns? What a great deal! Those who rent and the rich who buy theirs house for cash are forced by law to help us payoff our mortgages. The real estate industry lobbies hard in support of the mortgage interest deduction by arguing the housing industry is a main driver of our economy. Now, as reported by Investors Business Daily, we learn that the paragon of progressive virtue and faux indian princess, […]

Champion Of The 1.6 Percenters

According to a new survey by the Center For Disease Control, only 1.6% of Americans identify themselves as homosexual.

Kristallnacht 2.0 in Paris: Mob Vandalizes Jewish Businesses

H/T: Instapundit

I wrote a series of posts a few years back comparing our present day issues with the 1930’s. I see that this is coming to pass, at least in Paris, where an Anti-Semitic mob (read Muslims or leftists), vandalized Jewish owned businesses in Paris suburb…

Code Pink Kommisar Gets Photobombed by Pro-Israel Supporter!

The Code Pink(o) dear leader and apparent anti-semite, got photobombed in epic fashion at a recent rally, likely while calling for the death of all Jews.   H/T goes to Weasel Zippers… Gadsden, and Hebrew?  That’s a combination that will make liberal heads explode with twice the ordinary yield.

How many gay Americans are there? Less than 2%

Hat/Tip to CNS News. In 2011 Gallup conducted a survey, asking Americans to estimate how much of the population was homosexual. The results were surprising in that respondents thought that 1 in 4, or 25% of Americans were gay. Nothing could be farther from the truth, it seems. Contrary to popular belief, just 1.6 percent of American adults identify as homosexual, compared to 96.6 percent who say they are heterosexual, according to a large-scale, first-of-its-kind government survey recently released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In 2011, a Gallup survey found that 52 percent of Americans believed […]

Patriot or Vigilante? A US Veteran’s Actions Revisited

Our southern border with Mexico is barely a penciled-in line on some obscure map these days. The situation down there is chaotic and we have our President to thank for it. In light of all the recent happenings  there, I thought it apropos to revisit a story from Reno, Nevada in 2007. In October of that year, US Army Veteran Jim Brossard took matters into his own hands when he heard that a business owner in Reno was flying the Mexican flag ABOVE the American flag. He describes the incident this way on his website: In October of 2007, I […]
